A survey conducted by the Chinese Association on Tobacco Control, which covered more than 11,000 residents in ten major cities, showed that about 92 percent respondents support a full smoking ban in indoor public places, workplaces and on public transport facilities. Smoking has been prohibited in Shanghai's two airports since October 30, 2016.
The white paper said China produced over 52,000 papers related to nanotechnology in 2016, and the figure was only 820 twenty years ago. Back then, Chinese scientists contributed to only 6% of Science Citation Index (SCI) papers. Currently, the number of nanoscience papers produced by the country is twice as many as that of the United States.The plan is to publish two issues in English and one issue in Japanese every year, each about 1,200 copies, which will be distributed in universities, major libraries, and key research institutions in more than 40 countries including the United States, Britain, and Japan.
